    I guarantee you. If Mchale creates a playbook. He will become Coach of the Year.

    We lost to a bunch of scrubs that were built to tank…what positives can you draw from a game like that? (and I am the eternal optimist…) So angry at how our team is just throwing away games at the free throw line, by playing lazy D, ball hogging and being out coached.

    You forgot about the lack of defense from Lin that let to Anderson looking like Kobe.

    Can we talk about the real problem?

    Our starting SF has been in BIG slump lately and he's been playing huge minutes. His shots have been poor all around from his jumpers, 3pts to his FTS. His defense has taken a step back also. What happened to him over the break? He done a complete 180* to who he used to be.

    need to show this to parsons and lin.

    this team still need to learn how to box out howard's man when he's going after a block.

    offense is not the problem for this team.

    Defense on the other hand is just horrendous.

    And where has that lead us? To Harden already being banged up not even 10 games into the season.

    Sorry but our rotations are absolute *****. We have plenty of guys on the pine that could easily buy our best players a few minutes to rest.

    McHale is no doubt the worst coach in the league. Gets outcoached by rookies. Fact that he has no plays to run doesn't help him

    At the end of the day, it's common sense you foul up 3. Anderson hit a great shot. Shouldn't have came to that.

    Why was Lin on Anderson, who is 6 '6 with a wing span of 7'2 or so on him. Greg Smith should of been on him near the end?

    That was a great play, but it shouldn't excuse overall sloppy defense by multiple players.

    Amazing how people can blame this loss on Lin... The boy played his hearts out and kept us in the WHOLE game. Stop nick picking oh Lin. He played too many minutes and were gassed. Plus Anderson is a mismatch. If anyone is responsible for our loss, its McFail. If you cannot see that than you are dumb and dumber.
    It seems like McFail does not trust Lin. How can you go away from hot hand to win the game for you? Instead, you went with Parson, then Dwight, and then GARCIA? Come one! This one is epic fail by McHale bar none. Bad management of clocks, bench, play calling, and etc....

    I think people need to cut Harden some slack for his poor D. Yeah it needs work, but it isn't easy being the "the man" on offense and also playing D. It obviously affected Lin's D tonight also.
